i am putting in a very deep container now
its the next day and we tied it off last night. it is starting to go black and looks smaller. the chick looks like he has more energy than before. i will keep you updated hopefully he makes it!
Never had this happen in chicks before, but the premise of allowing the sack to slowly absorb (with minute pressure, as one would treat a hernia,) sounds promising and expedient, as long as sterility is kept at a maximum. I'll be waiting anxiously and sending prayers for it and strength for you regardless of the outcome. Olivia, you're a caring and loving Cluck Parent. Please keep us posted.
Pic isn’t real clear. If you are pushing on it it may not be a yolk sack. Could be an umbilical hernia, it will eventually go inside but it take time I had one took about a week. Keep it separate from the others they may peck at it and this will harm the chick. IMO I would not be trying to push anything into a chick, you could also harm it doing that.
Also yes if it is a yolk sack put it into a small cup and give it time.
thank you very much for your kind words. i will definitely keep you posted. right now, saffie is doing fine and beginning to eat and drink like her sisters. the lump is drying up and it is black as i have mentioned earlier so i think it will fall off. she is also showing signs of recovery as she is louder and stronger and can now stand up. my other chick also had what looked like an umbilical cord still attached to her after hatching. it had pieces of egg shell stick attached, also. her thing has now also dried up and i think it has fallen off now too so i hope safffie`s one will too. i am very worried about her as i had a very weak chick in the incubator who also had a yolk sac and she unfortunately passed hours after hatching. once again thank you all for your kind words and advice and i will keep you updated.
